David Cameron Drops Another Clanger

Recommended Posts

Ahh ****** it. You can't please all the people all the time.

The guy has spent his entire life working in either PR or politics but managed to insult 1.5 billion people in 3 different incidents in 3 months.

Not a bad record.:D

Did he insult them or did the media and political opposition tell us that we / they should be insulted?

I'm not sure about Moses but he seems to have a touch of Jonah about him.

That said those wiki leaks show the extent of Pakistan's two faced double-dealing when it comes to the Taliban, their security services are deeply untrustworthy, "Camroon" is simply speaking the truth, and the truth hurts. Not that it's very diplomatic of course.

But, amid warnings that the intervention could cause unrest among young British Pakistanis, he said he hoped the crisis could be resolved when the leaders meet this week at the PM's country retreat, Chequers.

Are we having an identity crisis here? Are they British or Pakistani.... or Pakistanis living in Britain?

David Cameron could be a direct descendant of Moses, a Jewish scholar has suggested.

:lol::lol:

Are there disproportionately many nutters amongst "Jewish scholars", even compared to similar cults? Or do they just get more press coverage?

I wouldn't have thought they still burn him - its been a while since he was the president.

"Is that David Miliband? This is the BBC, we were wondering if you could assist us in stirring up some trouble for David Cameron over some remarks about Pakistan".

Hey, it's just a bit of random shit stirring between two sworn enemies and nuclear armed states, what could go wrong?

They keep burning the same bloody effigy. They must have a warehouse full of them in pakistani. You would think that at least some effort would be made to put a looky likey plastic mask on the straw head . That effigy could have been anybody. Third world dicks

It gets better....

Israel President: 'England Is Anti-Semitic'

Israel's President has provoked an angry British backlash after accusing the English of being anti-semitic.

In an interview with the Jewish website Tablet, Shimon Peres said the country has become pro-Arab and anti-Israeli.

"In England there has always been something deeply pro-Arab, of course, not among all Englishmen, and anti-Israeli, in the establishment," the 87-year-old said.

"They abstained in the [pro-Zionist] 1947 UN partition resolution... They maintained an arms embargo against us in the 1950s... They had a defence treaty with Jordan, they always worked against us."

"They think the Palestinians are the underdog... Even though this is irrational."

He added: "There is in England a saying that an anti-Semite is someone who hates the Jews more than is necessary."

I don't think these are clangers though. I think some frank talk is way overdue.

I didn't know Dave had it in him.

Indeed. The problem with telling today's audience what they want to hear is that you eventually end up in front of an audience who heard what you said to the other lot, and don't like it.

Telling people what they want to hear is brown-nosing.

Straight talking is:

Telling an Isreali audience that Gaza is a prison camp.

Telling a Pakistani audience that they are supporting terrorism.

Telling your local veterans association that their mates who died were merely the junior partner to a country that had not yet entered the war.

Cameron may, or may not, have got it wrong, but its clear that he has not been doing any straight talking.

Do they have shops in Pakistan that specialise in effigies? I wonder if they do special offers:

"I'll have the Bush effigy please"

"Well today we have our Cameron, Rushdie special that comes with a free American flag and jerry can of petrol if you spend more than 300 rupees, interested?"

"Oh go on then..."

So the Pakistani security forces angrily deny backing militants and malcontents by hiring a rent-a-mob with standard issue effigies, 'professionally' printed banners and cans of petrol, not to mention a tip off detailing the exactly time and location to the foreign media. :rolleyes:

I read somewhere that diplomacy is the art of saying "Good doggie" convincingly while you look around for a rock.

As well as being true, people are forgetting the context of Cameron's statement about Pakistan. He made it while on a visit to India; a country that has suffered from numerous Pakistan-backed terrorist outrages in recent years. Cameron's comments would have gone down very well with his Indian hosts and it's good for British business to do this. India has one of the fastest growing economies in the world and represents a huge potential market for the UK. Pakistan on the other hand seems to import nothing more than aid and export nothing more than radical Islam. Who cares if Cameron's 'loos mouth' insults a failed state like Pakistan or the malcontent 'young British Pakistanis' (whatever they are).

Then why not go the whole hog and withdraw recognition of Pakistan?
